CEO of Spiky Fish Games Kendal Cormany has taken to the US PlayStation Blog to announce the North American release date for nonogram puzzler Sketchcross.

Launching with over fifty puzzles – from 5×5 sized to 30×30 sized – Sketchcross is referred to as a nonogram puzzler; meaning that the puzzle reveals an image in its solution when finished, and the image itself may be a clue to solving the puzzle in the first place.

According to Kendal, the game works (more specifically) like this;

“The numbers on the rows/columns are groups. The value of those numbers represents the connecting blocks of the group. Each group must be separated by at least one blank space. When you correctly solve the puzzle, you are rewarded with the reveal of your picture.” 

A game which comes in three difficulties (which coincidentally dictate the rules for the helpful hint-based “Check Button”) in its regular mode and also happens to sport a time-limited 30 second 5×5 muzzle mode called “frenzy”, Sketchcross makes an attempt to offer a mode right for you – whether you like things slow, or prefer them ridiculously fast-paced instead.

Oh, and did I mention it’s going to be offered at a discount for PlayStation Plus subscribers? 😉

Sketchcross is due out in North America on April 28th, with a European release yet to be detailed.

    My wife would love this. She loves these kinds of puzzle games. I’d better not tell her about it or she’ll take away my vita for herself.

    Not my personal style of puzzle game, but nice to have something to fill this niche for fans of this type of game. I wonder if that Vita Tetris game is still a thing?

    If the price is good, I will buy it
